For International students like you, this is an amazing time of learning but it can also affect your mental health as you deal with extra pressures while living away from family and your home country!


Counselling can help!

I am passionate about helping my clients discover hope and peace, and to live a life of purpose and joy!


I do this by helping people of all ages as they deal with depression, anxiety, painful relationships, or stressful life circumstances.


I use creativity and art as part of my approach and honour all parts of who my clients are: body, mind, emotions and spirit.

I can help you to find hope and freedom if you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or painful life experiences.


I understand how racism, discrimination, and unconscious bias compounds your pain. Together we will consider your own racial identity, cultural values, and belief system as we work through healing and improve your mental health.


I am available to counsel you through our online video conferencing platform, LifeStreams.
